Cloud Architectures for HPC – Industry Case Studies

Ignacio M. Llorente, OpenNebula Project, C12G Labs & Universidad Complutense

Many organizations are building HPC and science clouds for hosting virtualized computing and data processing environments, and for providing users with new innovative “HPC as a service” resource provisioning models. These HPC-optimized clouds provide access to flexible and elastic scientific and technical computing to solve complex problems and to drive innovation in science, engineering, manufacturing and analytics. The talk will describe the most demanded features for building HPC and science clouds, and will illustrate using real-life case studies from leading research and industry organizations how OpenNebula effectively addresses these challenges of cloud usage, scheduling, security, networking and storage.
